The JMB recognises the need to train and support new appointees to the post of Deputy Principal through providing a training programme incorporating two phases in their first year of appointment. The nature of the role now offers the Deputy Principal a real opportunity to be part of the senior management team in the school and to display leadership and initiative in discharging the role.

Participants are provided with practical advice as well as the chance to exchange views and network with colleagues.

Phase 1 of training will consist of a three-day course in June before the new school year commences and Phase 2 will consist of a two-day programme in November.
